Another great find from our friends at Analogue Life: the Noda Horo Nomaku Series pots, from Japanese product designer Koji Yamada.

Made from enameled steels, the pots heat up quickly and retain heat longer than most pans (their resistance to acids also means that food retains its original flavor).
